Losing Grip on the Roads? It’s a Tire Change You Need

When it comes to your tires literally meeting the road, your tire tread is probably the most important thing to consider. Constantly checking your tire treads and changing tires if appropriate significantly eliminates risks associated with tire-related accidents.

Typically tread depth measurements are taken in 32nds of an inch. A new tire hits the market with a standard tire tread depth of 10/32”. The minimum legally acceptable tread depth in most states is 2/32” making it necessary to constantly keep taking measurements.

While driving on icy or wet roads, bald tires will lead to inadequate grip that resulting in longer stoppage distances and hydroplaning risks. Adequate treads also help in channeling water out from below when the road is wet or when it's raining ensuring that you maintain control of your car while driving.
